his inaugural Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) event will take place on 1-4 July 2013, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and is being organised in full partnership with the Malaysian Government.
An improved knowledge of the theatre of operations, network-oriented communications and enhanced force protection capabilities are increasingly being seen as the most critical factors in the contemporary battlefield. This has been highly evident in Asia with nations in the region becoming more assertive over their air, sea and ‘‘space border’’ claims. In an environment of global defence cuts, ISR remains a strategic priority for global defence spending.
ISR Asia 2013 will be a fully comprehensive four day event including training workshops, two days of conference and exhibition and an exclusive site-visit to the Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency. Attend and network with heads of regional defence and civil organisations, senior Malaysian, Asian and International military representatives, and leading industry figures.
Topics under discussion will include the application of ISR in counter insurgency and counter terrorism; maritime surveillance; border control; military satellite communications and remote sensing; humanitarian and disaster relief; geospatial intelligence; the role of UAS in ISR operations; interoperability challenges and transforming information into intelligence.
